Positions and Achievements

Council: 2023

I started birding in early 1987 when I saw a bird guide on my boss's desk and realized that one could actually identify the birds I loved seeing. My boss was Don Jones, who is a long time member of DVOC. I have been birding since, mostly in the U.S. but also during my trips abroad. Living just north of Philadelphia, I tend to bird locally in Montgomery County, but I actually bird wherever I go because my binoculars are usually with me. I have known about DVOC for a long time and even attended one of the meetings as Don's guest. I retired a month ago and decided that it was time to join the DVOC. I am a chemical engineer by training and a material scientist by experience.
